Hi,

I deposited $ 200 into a casino with a very high bonus offer.

Meanwhile, I'm at $ 1600 but I still have to play through a lot of bonus. What is the best way to play through it? High stakes and hope or small bets with a lot of spins!?

What would you do??

Greetings

Make sure you aren't exceeding the max bet with each spin, this will void out any winnings (you can check the promotional T&Cs for the casino to see what this limit is). If you want to play for a while, go midstream betting. You don't want the casino to come back and say you weren't playing in the "spirit of the bonus" because you bet high then lowered your bets to finish playthrough.

Good luck!

Some casinos have max bets for bonus play. Which casino is this and what promotion are you playing?

Hello,

i play winpalace with a 235% Bonus. Playthrough 20000 Dollar.

It was a mistake from me. I think this is naturally not possible to playthrough and win something :-(

But, i want to ask you.....perhap. i have luck :)

And now!??

Regards + THANKS!°

It's possible to make playthrough, it will just take a while. You need to go to the casinos' website and look up the promotional terms and conditions to see what their max bet size it.

In order to withdraw winnings from this bonus we ask that you fulfill the following wagering requirements:

* Players are asked to wager the bonus and deposit amounts thirty (30) times before making any cash-outs.
* Bets placed on Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Sic Bo, Bingo and Poker will not count towards the wagering requirements of the bonus and will void all winnings won on this promotion.
* Bets placed on Blackjack, Perfect Pairs, Texas Holdem Bonus Poker, Multi Hand Video Poker and Video Poker will count $1: $0.25 of their original value towards wagering requirements
* Players cannot withdraw any winnings from this promotion until the wagering requirements are fulfilled.
So it looks like you can play whatever max bet the game will allow. There are no stipulations in the bonus terms and conditions that state what a "max bet" would be.

Good luck! :p

You can play any games (unless the promotion was for a specific game) you want. Play different ones, as some may be playing looser than others. If you find one which seems "tight" move on to a different game. Good luck!

Hi Sascha,

a rollover of $20K ? My advice would be to play for fun. Pick the games and the stakes that you LIKE playing. If as a happy by-product you hit the rollover then congrats and enjoy the cash. If you don't then at least you will have had more fun trying.

If you decide to start looking for the best possible strategy to hit the rollover, Ksech and VWM are right, and you may find them suddenly quoting this rule to avoid paying you:

''The casino reserves the right to review transaction records and logs from time to time, for any reason whatsoever. If, upon such review, it appears that player's are participating in strategies that the casino in its sole discretion deems to be abusive, the casino reserves the right to revoke the entitlement of such player to the promotion.''

Best of luck!

The 'GONG2' bonus claimed in this instance (I'm assuming... it was the only 235% one I could find) does have restricted games :

Wagering for Slots bonus

* Players are asked to wager the bonus and deposit amounts 30 times before making any cash-outs.
* Only bets placed on slots, keno and scratch cards will count towards the wagering requirements of the bonus. Wagering on restricted games does not count towards the fulfillment of the wagering requirements and will void all winnings won on this promotion.


CM... you posted a rule saying BJ and a few others are allowed, but I don't think this applies to the specific bonus here. Sascha.. was the bonus you used GONG2 ?

It would depend on exactly HOW much more WR there is to do; if it's not much more than your balance I would tend to low-roll on a low variance game, but if there's loads left I would just play games I liked, as Plexrep said.

At Winpalace meeting the wagering is only the beginning.
The REAL gamble happens at cashout time.
Win Palace do always pay out, and in a timely manor from what I've heard. The only thing which turns some people off is their weekly limit which was $500, but might be more now... (?)

What about the SPAM, and the fact that it is HIGHLY MISLEADING too.

How am I PERSONALLY awarded $80, using my FULL NAME, yet I have NEVER given them my details, nor played in any other casino in their group.

It looks like they hire "black hat" spammers, as do Gold VIP Club Whateva casino - which makes me think they are related.

I'm not familiar with the casino or which software it uses, but you all know that at some casinos, even thinking about the best way to clear a bonus is picked up psychicly by their finance department as 'bonus abuse' or not playing in the 'spirit of the bonus'.

(where's the tongue in cheek smilie icon??)

The second one. Small bets with a lot of spins is the best way to retain most of the $1600 imo.

Plex,

Being a rep for another casino some of your comments seem a bit problemtic....

Cheers,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Not sure what you mean. Problematic how? Was it the advice you think is bad, or just the fact that I'm chiming in when this is not a casino I represent?
